an epic food day - m's brother was in town, so we took him
around our neighborhood then into manhattan for lunch
at menkuitei for his first ramen experience.
we ordered shio saba (salt grilled mackerel) for appetizer,
and tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen for jesse, shoyu ramen
for me, and an oyako-don for m.
then for new year's eve dinner, our friend julia made a great
vegan chili and apple strudel. amazing for our last meal of
2011 - not to mention the great company.
